Dear community,

Thank you for sticking with us for all this time. No, really. The people who've been dedicated to us for so long deserve a medal, if only we could.

With that in mind it's time for us to bid farewell to our game servers and the majority of our community.
It's been a nearly 5 year journey across different community names hosting different games and services. It's been a fun ride but even the greatest things must come to a close at some point and we've hit that point.

There's been a lack of support from Valve and the TF2 community causing us to lose all sense of drive and passion to what used to be our favourite game. Team Fortress 2 has been at the center of all our hearts for years and because of that we provisioned game servers. Many of them in fact, just to give us and the community somewhere to call home.
A long time ago when we hosted Minecraft servers, we were popular, unique and inclusive welcoming many members each day. That slowly started to degrade as more servers came online and more popular YouTube personalities advertised them causing normal communities (like ours) to grind to a painful halt.

Fast forward nearly 3 years and GameShock was born. We had a vision, to create the most kick-ass multiplayer game server experience there could be. We thought we did it, but when there was little response from the community, we thought we were doing something wrong. We were. Our servers were unique but in a way that scared players away, we'd have quake sounds, fancy unusual effects on weapons etc... cool in principle but only really suitable for a trade server.
After rectifying most of this problem, I got in contact with Uncle Dane through Reddit. We spoke for a while and then we were made his official TF2 servers. This went well, really well and we were all super happy about it, the servers were full, we were making a profit to pay for our servers and most importantly the community was booming.

After a while, the servers started to drop...

Hey everyone!

So we were thinking about hosting Final Frontier for Garry's Mod and we wanted to know whether you guys would be interested. For those who don't know, Final Frontier is essentially "FTL: Faster Than Light" but in first person and multiplayer. It is an old gamemode that has recently been resurrected and we think it would be fun to give this gamemode a shot.

For those who would like to know more about the gamemode itself, please direct your attention to the following links:

We would love to hear your thoughts on this proposal so please drop a comment below to let us know what you think!
